Graduates of '51 Meet


Place: Lobby of Hotel International
Time: November 12, 1955; 2:30 P. M.
Main Speakers: Principal of S. C. 0. H. S. and Mr. Osborne
Purpose: To acquaint each graduate of the achievements of every other graduate
The session begins with the Principal's telling of the work of those who have decided to
reside in Panama permanently. He starts to tell of the many positions they hold in the different
enterprises, not to mention some of their humanitarian efforts they display toward better living
conditions.
He begins: "I think you all know why you have been called here. I want to commend
the group as a whole for the splendid job they have performed since leaving high school.
No doubt, you have heard the report from the Board of Education saying that this
group will be used as a model to judge future graduating groups.
"Oh, well, let me get down to the most important part. I'will start with those
whom we don't see often, such as, doctors, lawyers, etc.
"Do you know who are the three doctors in the Herrick Hospital? They are Alberto
Brown, Howvard Brathwaite, and Charles Mayers, specializing in neurology, physiology,
and chemistry respectively. Other outstanding doctors of the group are Joseph Gressel and
Alfonso Davis, who are working in the clinic situated in the Hotel El Panama. And here
we have a big doctor who in high school days was a veiy spnall boy. He is Harold Laurie,
who has decided to be a country doctor for the people living in the District of Chagres.
"The women folks are also taking part in the field of medicine. The assistant to the
head neurologist in the Herrick Hospital is Nina Williams who is working hard to find a
compound that will burn up the excess sugar stored in the body of diabetic patients. This
compound will enable the patients to go on with their regular diet. Jacqueline Russel and
Alva Andrews are assisting Nina.
"One of the most outstanding graduates of this class is about to attend the U. N. meet-
ing in New York. He is George Smythe, Panama's permanent delegate to the U. N. Be-
sides being a great lawyer, he is also a Doctor of Education. Two of his five aides are
among this group. They are Robert Samuels, the linguist, and his wife, (the former
Pearline Thorne) who set a record for taking shorthand notes which earned her the job
as secretary.
"You have heard about the works of these, too, I am sure; namely Reginald Monge-
rie, Rupert Neblett, Clifford Lewis, Lionel Whittaker, Enez Hunter, Joselyn Graham and
Stena Bryan. They are trying to put forth the bill that will increase health institutions and
housing facilities and yet allow the government to keep the same tax rate.
"I think that Carlos Steed has also done a great job in the criminal courts. He, along
with other lawyers-Robert Quinland, Albert Weeks, and, Hubert Alfred is traveling to the
States to further his education on criminology.
"We have two judges here today, Carlos Greene, and Ralph Gooding. They have been
working earnestly to reduce the rate of juvenile delinquency in Chorillo and Chorerra
respectively.
"There are others who are affiliated with the law and not so well-known because they
are policemen. They are Lieut. Roderick Stevens and Corporal Raymond Myrie. Myrie is
the tailor who designed the new suits for the officers, Rudolph Prince, Rudolph Treleaven
and Cynthia Cobham, the first local policewomen.
"Now for the musicians, singers and athletes. The musicians and singers of this group
are now on a tour of the Caribbean Islands entertaining the hospitalized inmates who have
no outside relatives. These musicians are Elsie Yard, Icelyn Peat, Cutler Herbert, Astor
Jones, Frank Clark, Henry Clark, Ivan Duprey, Mary Aurelien, Carmen Treleaveun, and
Lucille Gibbs.
When these musicians are through with this charitable chore, they will return here
to play in the Joyland Nite Club owned by Inga Bendigo, Percival Vernon and Olga Castillo.
By the way, Inga is the leading "blues" singer of Panama.









Class Prophecy (cont'd)


"Some well-known singers who have decided to travel to the U. S. to have their voices
properly trained are Myrtle and Sylvia Haynes, Magdalena Herbert, and Candelaria Archi-
bold. They hae been singing in the National Theater as a group which formed the
musical background for certain stage plays that have taken place. They are going to study
unrider the Maestro and former fellow student, Dudley Smith. .
Those who have decided to be ball players are also very good in their field, and have
become idols of the younger set. You iould know fast ball pitcher Cyril Adamson who is
widely known as Panama's Don Newcombe. Rupert Ifill, (nicknamed one-man bench) the
classy firstbaseman who can play in any other position except that of pitcher. Two great fly-
chasers are Stanley Reece and Cyrus Tull. TIhey can cover the outfield with both grace
and speed. They are so fast on the diamond that the other outfielders are called traffic
cops when playing beside them. All four of them are on the Spur Cola team battling
for supremacy.
"In the track and field there are a number of girls who have* been proving that they
are as fast and as strong with their legs as they are wise with their brains. They have been
equaling and bettering local track records and are not very far from tying world. records.
Recently, the Athletic Commission has selected them for Panama's Women Relay team.
These swift, but charming ladies are Jean Turner, Ainsel Nelson, Dorothy Roach, and Clem-
entina Burke. When they are not running they are managing their own, and Panama's only
glassware factory.
"The boys have been doing their share also on the cinder paths. They, too, have been
bettering track records. There are three of them who are Panama's best runners. They are
Beresford Bartley, Victor Watson, and Vivian Smith. Bartley is the top sprinter, Watson
the great long-distance runner, and Smith the king of the middkle-distance races. Two of
them, Watson and Bartley, have interest in the Glassware factory. Smith on the other hand
is typically sport-minded. He broadcasts fights and gives play-by-play descriptions of base-
ball games.
"This concludes my part of the day's talk. Mr.Osborne will now tell you the rest of the
story."
MR. OSBORNE: "I will not attempt to praise this group right now because what I would
say might go on endlessly. I will just say this, though: This group has accomplishLd very
much and is noteworthy to talk about because of the very good credit the school received.
'Oh, well, let me get going.
"I'll start with two popular'persons in high school days. They are Mr. ani Mrs. Al-
phonso Charles, the former Miss Dalthia Clarke. They are living in Detroit where they
have opened their own Make-up and Beauty Shop establishment. Also living in Detroit,
Michigan, are Fredrick Goddard, clergyman, Granville Gordon, detective, and Ferdinan'
Treleaven the fifth ranking middle-weight boxer in the world.
"There ate some others living 'n California and they think the place is similar to Pa-
nama, but only a little colder during the months of December, January, and FebruarY .
They are Herman Reece and Courtney Clarke. These two are studying theology ir- the
city's convent.
"In Hollywood, we have Teresa Francois the authority on coiffures. She can not only
tell you what style will suit you Lest, but she can also put the style in your hair. Teaming
up with her is Herbert Clarke, her fiance who will also rate excellent in the matter of
coiffures.
"There are some who have decided to be actors and who have been rivaling other
well-established stars because of the constant demand of the pictures they appear in.
"There must be a hero or heroine to apprehend these thugs or aid in their apprehension.
Leonard 'Starboy' Norman and beautiful Joyce McBean also appeared in My Aching Back
and The Death Stamp and defied death to bring criminals to justice.
"Hazel Palmer is one of the leading Western Stars. She can sing those hillbilly songs
just as well as she can do tricks on a horse. And can she do tricks! If you haven't seen
Tim Buck One and His Gals then go see it because it will assure you of Palmer's great
riding ability.
"These actors are very good, but might not have hit the limelight if it were not for the
work of Geroge Reid and Herbert Denny. Reid and Denny, as you know, are to prominent
members of the N.A.A.C.P. who have contributed much towards the goal of the organiza-
tion.







Class Prophecy (cont'd)


"Norma Williams, Clerene Tull and Susan Warner are three ladies you will hear
much about in the near future. Williams is a biologist who has been doing a lot of experiments
on the causes of common colds. Tull is about to finish her studies as a nun and then she
will return to Panama City to work in the Cathedral. She has been visiting Latin-Ameri-
can Churches in order to get good experience as to the functioning of the churches..Susan
Warner has been putting her efforts to work towards getting better health facilities for
Negroes. She is currently staying in Bermuda helping to improve living conditions by
giving helpful advice to the authorities.
"You have just heard my talk about the outcome of your former schoomates. They
have all been working hard trying to earn a living and at the same time put themselves at
the top in whatever field they have chosen. In fact, you all have contributed much to the
A welfare and economic standards of the country as well as improving standards of living
elsewhere.
"I sincerely hope that succeeding groups will follow the pattern this group has set.
Well, with God's speed and good luck, I hope you carry on. Thank you."















ONCE AGAIN another school year packed with activities, pleasant memories, and mo-
ments of anxiety comes to a.close. Looking over these events, we recall vividly the following
outstanding occurrences.
As juniors in 1949, we organized a Students' Association. This organization was a great
help to us in furthering our activities. During that year, on October 29, we also organized the
Club Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. This club conducted most of our cultural and educational
Latin programs. The officers of the club were .Ralph Gooding, president; Joseph Gressel,
vice-president; Graham R. Lewis, R. Jones, and Olga Castillo, committee members. In that
same year we held an amateur contest. A member of the class who won a prize was Astor
Jones. Again during that year we visited many places in Panama, among them, Penonome,
Santiago de Veraguas, Agua Dulce and Salud. During the latter part of the year 1950 our class
conducted a panel discussion on the history and government of Panama. We had an audience
of about 503 students present at this gathering. In November, the group held a popularity
party which everybody enjoyed. On Panama's Independence Day, our class sponsored another
panel discussion under the supervision of our English teacher, Miss F. M. Josephs. The parti-
cipants were Vivian Smith, Teresa Francois, and Roderick Stevens.
During our senior year the class had an enrollment of eighty students. These students
.were almost evenly distributed among the different departments. Our senior year was just as
enjoyable a time as we had when we were industrious, ad.nturous, and merry juniors.
As a part of our additional activities, a former graduate of our school, Miss Hazel Gordon,
who is now a nurse, demonstrated the care of the baby to the home management group. Ser-
geant Wahl of the Cristobal Police Department talked to our business class on counterfeit mo-
ney. Both activities were most interesting and educational.
To open their home project the home economics girls had a tea party. During the months
of January and February of 1951, the home management girls made several field trips to some
of our food-producing areas. They also visited the local market, the grocery stores, and vege-
table gardens at Gatun and Margarita. Those girls also had a most entertaining fashion show
in their classroom.
We, the students of the class of '51, are most grateful 'for the many intellectual, social
and moral benefits we have derived as students of the Silver City Occupational High School.
As we say farewell, we say thanks for the happy memories that will always be a source of
gratitude and joy.

PASSING THE BUCK
COLLEGE PROFESSOR: Such rawness in a
pupil is a shame; lack of preparation in high
school is to blame.
HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER: Good Heavens,
what crudity; the boy's a fool! The fault, of
course, is in the grammar school.
GRAMMAR SCHOOL TEACHER: From such
stupidity may I be spared, they send them up to
me unprepared.
PRIMARY TEACHER: Kindergarten block-
head! And they call that preparation. Worse
than none at all.
KINDERGARTEN TEACHER: Such lack of
training never did'I see; What kind of woman
must the mother be.
THIE MOTHER: Poor helpless child-he's not
to blame; His father's people are all just the
same.

Since the record of each of these seniors had been so good, it was not possi-
ble to determine early in March who would be valedictorian or salutatorian. The
important thing is that all deserve credit and the respect of their classmates. The
averages indicated are based on a possible straight "A" average of 4.030 honor
points earned during the three high school years.

Whitfield Gittens, a freshman, won second prize in Latham Foundation
Poster Contest. His theme was "World Unity through Education".
Wilfred McLeod received a certificate of merit on the same subject.
Sophomore Economic Class won Community Chest intramural donation
contest. These students ranked first in the average contribution and were
awarded a trophy.
Joyce Agard, a sturdy junior, won a $25 ten years bond donated by
Safety Week Council. Joyce's essay was'rated first among all participants.
Ernest J. Jamieson Jr. a junior, won first prize in Pan American Week Con-
test sponsored by the Cristobal Women's Club under the auspices of the Miguel
Cervantes Club.
Doris Seales won second prize.
Third prize was awarded to Ida Brown.

Clifford Lewis "the alchemist" deserves our thanks for doing the bulk of the
photographic work in the school. Lloyd Edwards (class of '49') helped greatly by
lending some of his professional photographic equipment and talent. (Sec Lloyd's
ad in our advertising section.) Junie Scott arid Cutler Herbert were always ready
with their pens and paint brushes. You see their work throughout the book.

Graduates of '51 Meet Place: Lobby o f Hotel Time: November 12, 1955 : 2;30 P. M. Main Speakers: Principal of S. C. O. H. S. and Mr. Osborne Purpose: To acquaint each graduate of the achievements of every other graduate The session begins with the Principal's telling of 'the work of those who have decided to reside in P anama permanently. H e sta rt s /0 tell of the many positions they hold in the different enterprise!, not to mention some of their humanitarian efforts they display toward better living conditio ns. He begins: "I think you all know why you have be e n called here. I want to commend the group as a whole for the splendid job they have p er f orme d since leaving high school. No doubt, yo u have heard the report from the Board of Education saying that this group will b e used as a model to judge future graduating groups. "Oh, well, let me ge t down to the mo s t important part. I will start with thos e whom we don't see often, such as, doctors, lawyers, etc. "Do yo u know who are the three doctors in the H e rrick Hospital? They are Alberto Bro"n, Ho,vard Brathwaite, and Charles Mayers, specializing in neurology, physiology, and chemistry re spec ti ve l y Other outstanding doctors of the group are Gr esse l and .\Ifonso Davis, who a r e working in the clinic situated in the Hote l EI Panama. And here we h"ve a big-doctor who in high school days wa. a velY s",all bo y He is Harold Laurie, who h as decided to be a country doctor for the people living i n the District of Chagres. "The women folk s a l so taking part in the field of medicine. The assistant to th e h ead neurologist in the Herrick Hos [,ital is Nina Williams who is working hard to find a compound that \\'ill burn up th e excess sugar stored in the hody of diabetic patients. This compo und will enable the pati en ts to g o on with their regular diet. Jacqueline Russe l and Alva Andrews a r e assisting Nina. "On e of th e most outstanding graduates of this class is about to attend the U. N meet ing-in New York. He i s George Smythe, Panama's permanent delegate to the U. N. Be' sides being a great l aw y e r he i s also a Doctor of Education. Two of his five a ides are among this gro up. They are Robert Samuels, the lin gu ist a nd his wife, (the former Pearline Thorne) who set a record for taking shorthand notes which earned her the job as secretarv. "You have h ea rd abou t the works of these, too, I am s ure; namely Reginald Monge ri e Rupert Neblett, C lifford Le"i s, Lionel Whittaker, Enez Hunter, Josel,n Graham and Stena Bryan. They are trying to put forth the bill that will increase health ins titution s a n d housing f aci liti es and }et a llo w the gove rnment to ke e p the same tax rate. I think that Carlos Steed has also done a great job in the criminal courts. H e, a long with other lawyers-Rohert Quinland, Albert Weeks, and, Huber t Alfred is travelin g to the States to furth er his education on criminology. "We have two judges here today, Carlos Greene, and Ralph Gooding. They have bee it workin g ea rne stly to reduce the rate of juvenile delinquency in Chorillo and Chorerra resp ecti ve l y. "There are others who are ffiliated with the law and not so wellknown bec a u se they are poiicemen. They are Lie ut. Roierick Stevens and .corporal Ra ymon d Myrie. Myrie is the t ailo r who designed the n ew s uit s for the officers, Rujolph Prince, Rudolph Treleaven a n d Cynthi a Cobham, the first loc a l policewom611. "Now for the musiciansl 5ingers and athletes. The musicians and singers of this group are n ow on a tour of the Caribbean I sla nds entertaining the hospitalized inmates who have no outs ide r e lati ves These musicians are Elsie Yard, lcelyn Peat, Cutler Herbert, Astor Jones, Frank Clark, Henry Clark, Ivan Duprey, Mary Aurelien, Carmen Treleavefl and Lucille Gibbs. When the,e musiCians are through with this charitable chore, they will r e turn here to play in the JoylalLd Nite Club owned b y lnga Bendigo, Percival Vernon and Olga Castillo. By the way, Inga is the leading "blues" singer of Panama.

PAGE 22

Class Prophecy (cant'd) "Some well-known singers who have decided to travel to the U. S. to have their voices properly trained are Myrtle and Sylvia Haynes, Magdalena Herbert, and Candelaria Archibold. They ha\e been si nging in the NaHonal Theater as a gmup which formed the musical backglOund for certain stage plays that have taken place. They are go in g to study under the Maestro and former fellow student, Dudley Smith. "Those who have decided to be ball players are also very good in their field, and have become idols of the younger set. You "ould know fast ball pitcher Cyril Adamson who is widely known as Panama's Don Newcombe. Rupert Ifill, ( nicknamed one-man bench) the classy firstbaseman who can play in any other position except that of pitcher. Two great Aychasers are Stanley Reece and Cyrus Tull. 1 hey can cover the outfield with both grace and speed. They are so fast on the diamond that the other outfield ers are called traffic cops when playing beside them. All four of them are on the Spur Cola team battling for supremacy. "In the track and' field there area number of girls who h ave' been proving that they are as fast and as strong with their l egs as they are wise with their brains. They have been equaling and bettering l ocal track records and are n o t very far from tying world records. Recently, the Athletic Commission has selected them for Panama's Women Relay team. These swift, but charming ladies are Jean Turner. Ainsel Nelson, Dorothy Roach, and Clemen tin a Burke. When they are not running they are managing their own, and Panama's only g l asswa re factory. "The boys have been doing their share also on the cinder paths. They, too, have been bettering track records. There are three of them who are Panama's best runners. They ar e Beresford Bartley, Victor Watson, and Vivian Smith. Bartley is the top sprinter, Watson the great long-distance runner, and Smith the king of the middle-distance races. Two of thein, Watson and Bartley, have interest in the Glassware factory. Smith 0'1 the ether hand is typically sport-minded. He broadcasts fights and gives play-by-play descriptions of base ball games. "This concludes my part of the day's talk. Mr. Osborne will now t ell you the re 3t of the story." MR. OSBORNE: "I will not attempt to praise this groupright now because wh t I woulJ say might go on endlessly. I will just say this, though: This group has accomplished very much and is noteworthy to talkabout because of the very good credit the schoolleceived . Oh, well, let me get going. ''I'll start with two popular'persons in high school days. They are Mr. ani Mrs. Al phonso Charles, the former Miss Dalthia C larke. They are li vir.g in Detr oit w here they have opened their own Make-up and Beauty Shop establishment. Also li_ing in Detroit, Michigan, are Fredrick Goddard, c1ergymar, Granville Gordon. detecti\'e, and Ferdinan" Treleaven the, fifth ranking middle-weight boxer in the world. "There ale some olhers living:n California and they think the place is similar t o P a nama, but on l y a little co lder during the months of December, January, and Februa r : They a r c Herman Reec e and Courtney Clarke, These two are studying theology i!; the c it y's co n vent. llIn Hollywood, .we have Teresa Francois the authqrity on coiffures. She can not only ttll you what style will suit you test, but she can abo put the style in your hair. Teaming up with her is Herbert Clarke, htr fiance who will a l so rate excellent in the matter of "There are some who havt decided to bt acturs and who have been rivaling other well-established star s because of the constant demand of the pictures they appear in. "There must be a hero or h eroine to apprehend these thUg5 or aid in their apprehension. Lwn3rd 'Starboy' Norman and beautiful Joyce McBean a lso appeared in My Aching Back and The Death Stamp a nd defied death to bring criminals to just;ce. "Hazel Palmer is one of the leading Wtstern Stars. Sbe can sing those hillbilly songs jU5t as well as she can do trk-ks on a horse. And can he do tricks! If you haven't seen Tim Buck One and His Gals then go see it because it will a.sure you of Palmer's great riding ability, "These actorR are very good, but might not have hit the limelight if it were not for the work of Geroge Reid and Herbert Dtnny, Reid and Denny, as you know, are t\\O prominent members of the N.A.A.C.P. who have contributed much towards th e gc.al of the organization.

PAGE 23

Class Prophecy (cont'd) "Norma Williams, C1erene Tull and Susan Warner a rc three ladi es you w ill hear much about in the near future. Williams is a biologist who has been doing a lot of experimfnts on the causes of common colds. Tull is about to finish her studies as a nun and then she will return to Panama City to work in the Cathedral. She has been visiting Latin-American Churches in order to get good experience as to the functioning of the church es . Susan Warner has h ee n putting her efforts to work towards getting better health f aci litie s foc Negroes. She is currently staying in Bermuda helping to improve living conditions by giving h e lpful advice to the autho rities. "You have just heard my talk about the outcome of your former schoomates, They have all been working hard trying to earn a living and at the same time put themse lves at the top in whatever field they haw chosen. In fact, you all have contributed much to the \\ elfare and eco nomic staridards of the country as well as improving standards of living elsewhere. "I sincerely hope that succeeding groups will follow the pattern this group has set. Well, with God's speed and good luck J hope you carryon. Thank you." ONCE AGAIN another school year packed with activi tie s pleasant m e m or i es, a nd moments of anxiety co m es to a.c1ose. Looking over the se events, we recall vividly the following outstnndirlg occurrences. As juniors in 1949 we organized a Students' Association. This organization was a great help to us in furthering our activities. During that yea r on October 29, we also organized the Club Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. This club conducted most of our cultural and educationa I Latin programs. The officers of the club were Ralph Gooding, president; Joseph Gressel, v icepresident; Graham R. Le wis, R. Jono.s, and Olga Castillo, committee member s. In that same year we held an amateur contest. A member of the class who won a prize was Astor Jon es. Again during that }ear we visited many places in Pan ama, among them, Penonome, Sanriago de Veraguas, Agua Dulce and Salud. During the latter patt of the year 1950 our class conducted a panel discussion on 6e his to r y a nd gove rnm en t of Panama. We had an audience of about 50J stud e nts present at this gathering. Tn November, the g roup held a popularity party which everybody enjoyed. On Panama's Independence Day, our class sponsored another panel discussion under the supervision of our English teacher, Mi,. F. M. Jose phs The parti cipants were Vivian Smith, Teresa Francois, and Rod erick Stevens. During our se nior year the class had ao enrolIment of eighty students. These students were a lmost even l y distributed among the differ elPt departments. Our senior year was just as enjoyable a time as we had when we were industrious, adtlenturous, and merr y juniors As a part of our additional activities a form e r graduate of our sc hool, Miss Hazel Gordon, who is now a nurse, demonstrated the care of the baby to the home management group. Sergeant Wahl of the Cristobal Police Department talked to our business class on counterfeit money. Both ac ti "ities were most interesting and educatio nal. To open t h eir hom e project the hom e ecor.o mi cs gi rls had a tea party. Durin g the months of J a nuary an d Febnrary of 1951, the home management girls made s everal field trips to some of our f ood-produc ing areas. They a lso visited the loca l market, the grocery s tore s, and vege t able g a rd.ns a t Gatun and Margarita. Thosegirls also h ad a most entertaining fashion show in their classroom. We, the students of the c las s of 51, are most grateful for the many intell ec tual, social and moral benefits we have derived as students of the Silver City Occupational High School. As we say farewell, \\e say thanks for the happy memories that wiII always be a source of gratitude and jo y.
